Every dollar you give to United Way creates opportunities and inspires hope for a better tomorrow. Your gift to United Way supports the foundation of our community through the work of local programs that impact people’s lives in a real and meaningful way. When you give to United Way, you not only provide a “hand up” to someone who needs it – you impact all of us who live and work here. United Way impacts people’s lives in a real and meaningful way by supporting the foundation of our community and working to achieve what one single agency cannot do alone.
United Way of Greater Duluth (UWGD) is focused on the building blocks for a good life – a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement, and good health. UWGD works with agencies and community volunteers to invest wisely in our community to create real, lasting changes. UWGD is committed to:
Fostering Successful Children and Youth
UWGD fosters the healthy development of children and youth to ensure they are ready to succeed in school and life through:
- Increasing children’s readiness to achieve in school
- Improving academic achievement
- Promoting positive youth development through high-quality out-of-school opportunties
Promoting Financial Stability and Independence
UWGD promotes financial stability and independence as a way to assist lower-income individuals and families in the transition out of poverty through:
- Increasing income
- Gaining and sustaining savings/assets
Improving People’s Health
UWGD supports increased access to healthcare services and benefits in an effort to improve physical, mental, and dental health of uninsured and under-insured people.
Ensuring a Strong Network of Basic Human Services
UWGD provides vital ongoing operating support to organizations and programs, working to ensure a strong network of basic human services that meet people’s emergency and transitional needs for food, shelter, housing, safety and clothing.
With your support we can achieve these goals. Please consider United Way in your year-end giving plans. Give as generously as you can – a gift to United Way is 100 percent tax deductible.
We all win when a child succeeds in school, when a family becomes financially stable, when people have good health and when families can meet their basic needs. Join us in supporting the network of health and human service programs that keeps our community strong and makes it a great place to live and work! Please give to United Way.
